Are you hot with anticipation?

Prepare for something new

Establish something beautifully sustaining

Hot love? This week has an ‘anything is possible’ flavour to it thanks to the Sun’s arrival in your expansive and adventurous 9th. That yearning for adventure could just extend to romance and if so, are you ready to answer the call? Remember, you have to take to first step ‘out there’ whatever experience your soul is calling out for now. That’s what adventures require to set them in motion. Get out there and feel good. You can harness soaring confidence , sexiness and a Devil-may-care attitude that others just find hard to resist. Travel is highlighted now and there’s a feeling of optimism around you that is infectious. You have the feeling that something important is about to begin. And the thing is – it is! You are about to step into a new cycle as this is one of those points in the year for you where fresh starts or opportunities present themselves. And that includes business as well as in love. Above all, explore as many possibilities as you can. This is taking that first step that I mentioned earlier.

Career and even real estate decisions also feature this week. Establishing something beautiful either in terms of your income or a refuge for your soul could follow ruler Venus in your 10th opposing Saturn in your 4th. A move is now highly likely for some Librans and if so, you could be looking at moving somewhere better than where you currently live and also unpacking and putting down ‘roots’ for some time to come. Others could be contemplating a job offer or career move that builds on their experience or something they have been working towards. This week should leave you with a sense of excitement and of satisfaction. You know you’re on the cusp of something new so get ready to experience it.

What holds you back?

Tap into a different kind of power

Be ready for a sexy, electric, dynamic change cycle

We know you are the sign of partnership, Libra. But get ready to step into a cycle of independence and self-empowerment. Hand in hand with this is going to be a bold, brazen and daring new sexiness so it’s not just about flying solo. But you are about to experience an awakening that plugs you into your own power – and you will be amazed at what a limitless resource this is!

Uranus has spent seven years in the house of your chart that rules all things Libran – partnerships, close relationships and even that person who gets up in your grill. During this time you should have awakened to what or who it is you truly need in a partner as well as experimented with deep connections of all kinds. From collaborations to activity partners or business partners as well as lovers. If a connection was not working for you, Uranus should have shaken you free of it. Uranus unchains us. Or you may have discovered that the kind of partner you need is different to what you want. Above all, no matter what relationship you may have been or not been in as the case may be, you should have emerged knowing more about your individual needs in a relationship and what or who you need to get them met. One last piece of the puzzle around a former, current or potential partner remains and you could just  see where this fits as Mercury has a final meeting with Uranus in here on the 13th. Which opposite number or situation involving you and at least one other person is in focus around now? You’ll see all too clearly how the shift within you affects how you relate – and other relate back in turn. The proof is in the result now.

Mercury enters your 8th (13th) ahead of Uranus (15th) beginning a process where you will be first be challenged by new ideas. These could revolve around your salary, your money or something you share. This is the start of a seismic shift for you. The day Uranus appears in your 8th a new Moon marks the beginning of this important cycle of change. Please remember: if things do not change they cannot improve. Uranus shocks us into a state of heightened awakening. This allows us to see all too clearly where in our lives we have been coasting or just settling for ‘okay’. Stepping into our full power only happens when we solve challenges. Uranus often hands us these in the form or surprises when things don’t quite turn out the way we expected them. But that’s fine because this process ultimately ensures we end up in a better place plus we are reminded what it feels like to be fully alive.

Accepting change forms part and parcel of this cycle puts you in a position to go with it and evolve through it. Which is all the universe wants for you. The 8th house rules our fears. And the really good stuff about the 8th house is that it rules sex. Or relationships where sex is important. Many astrologers don’t want to talk about sex and your 8th. I’m not going to comment about the fear connection but obviously here it does not apply: So let’s talk about sex. That seismic shift of Uranus in this house could be via an intense sexual relationship. Perhaps with someone unlike anyone you have met before. Remember, Uranus always brings an awakening or even a re-awakening. Your tastes may change. You may want to experiment more. Or if your sex life has been a Sahara or you have been telling yourself that love has passed you by – get ready to visit the Oasis of Lust. What you need to remember here is that the 8th takes us deep (pun intended!). Yes, it rules sex but think sex with depth. The 8th is the house of transformation and sharing and when we share a deep sexual experience with another, we and they, are transformed by it. So, that lover like no other may be just one surprise Uranus is set to deliver. Shifts in your finances may also occur and the key here is to let go and be as adaptable as possible.

Ruler Venus who rules not just your love life but your bank account too. The secret to success? Be flexible and adaptable. Time to update and/or upgrade your professional image and cultivate some beautiful ambitions too. You are in a position where you can make the very best impression on the people who are in a position to say ‘Yes’ to you. Whether this is to that new job, raise, promotion, pitch or order. Your stock is set to rise as your ruler enters your 10th of career and reputation on the 19th. Pay attention to your image and craft how you come across as this will play an important role. Present the very best you in how you look and what you say and be your own best investment now. Showcase your individuality and what you alone can offer as Venus makes a positive angle to Uranus too.

The Sun in your 9th from the 21st puts the focus on expansion and personal freedom. You’re set for new experiences especially when the Sun angles to Mars in your romance hot zone on the 24th. Business, commerce and communication activities are set to take you on into June. Travel may not be on the horizon for some of you thanks to Mercury’s entry into your 9th. The full Moon in your 3rd which is Mercury’s ruling house connections you to a bigger vision and your place in it. You should reach out now and grasp an opportunity that in some ways is set to broaden your horizons. This could be a game-changer for you and put you not only back in the flow of life, but see you showcase your ability, personal power and put more resources at your disposal as it does. Make those power moves this May.

In a nutshell: Powerful changes around finances, property, assets, what you owe and what you are owed, pave the way towards freedom. Explore and utilise resources you did not know you had, Libra.

Libra 2018 

Your love life is under the spotlight for most of 2018. Quirky Uranus has been given you quite the rollercoaster ride over the past seven years. 2018 Kicks off with Uranus turning direct in your house of love. Have you had shocks, surprises or revelations connected to an ex? If so things are calming down after the 2nd.

Having said that you are still keen to make radical decisions to find peace and harmony in your close relationships. Venus, your ruler, is joining forces with game changer Pluto in your home and family zone. If you’ve been waiting for an energy shift, Pluto could deliver. Be proactive and think about what you can do to give it a helping hand. The Sun is also conjunct Pluto on the same day giving you the confidence to say what you need and want from home and family.

2018 could be a spectacular year to invest or transform property, look out for an idea on the 16th when Jupiter the planet of good fortune in your money and security zone sextiles Pluto. With Saturn as your houseguest in your 4th, you are laying the foundations for something that truly sustains you. Home, family and your roots as well as your past will either be cemented or re-defined by you. There’s an element of putting the past in perspective here. Of looking to what truly sustains you and of establishing your priorities. You may move or buy property at this time. See Jupiter as your banker and Saturn handing you the keys. This is all about creating a future and thinking in the long term. You’re bringing a new maturity to this and also a new perspective. You make your own rules and perhaps, if you have long term issues around family, then to heal these. This may involve re-writing the rules about what family is to you. You can live on your own terms now and again, these are keys to your future.

February brings you the ability to bring about a deep healing as Venus conjuncts Neptune on the 21st.  This allows you to move into a space of self-love and forgiveness. 2018 is an empowering year for you. Through being compassionate with yourself, there comes a magical shift in your love life. There could be cosmic and karmic link and soul contracts operating here. Venus enters Aries and your 7th house of love on the 6th March further enhancing the cosmic magic. Chances are your higher self has been sending you messages through dreams, insights  and just ‘gut’ feelings before all this transpires. You may have an intuitive sense someone is going to appear – and then they do. Tap into your inner knowing now.

Jupiter goes retro from the 9th March bringing in a possible return of potential from the past. Take meetings and hook up with past contacts who might prove more influential than you think. Where you in love with a project or had a lofty dream you let go of? Now is the chance to reboot, revamp and upcycle it. For best results be consistent. Nothing pays off like persistence. It’s time to dedicate yourself to a dream – and see it through.

The major news of 2018 is Uranus which moves from your relationship zone to your house of primal power. Uranus in the 8th house is going to make the next few years incredibly interesting.. Expect profound experiences and close encounters this year. Sex, money, life, death, rebirth and intense experiences. Uranus is waking up the depths of your soul; anything buried now  rises from the ashes. The Universe is asking you to examine your relationship to power and powerlessness and all your raw emotions and subconscious desires. Remember, all the parts of ourselves we fear, we disown – these ‘shadow’ elements are in fact where our power resides. Uranus in here can have us looking at these very differently and integrating them. We can reach own for new solutions, new ways of framing experiences and in fact see that our fears have no power over us – unless we choose to give it to them. 

On the 7th August Uranus will take you on a magical mystery tour into your past as Uranus seeks to surprise you with old patterns and tunnels of enlightenment. If there’s anything you have chosen not to deal with obsessions, sexual issues or losses from yesteryear Uranus will lend a helping hand. At first it might appear overwhelming but Uranus is intent on showing you your true power. Step out into a radical new dynamic now.  

Unlike Mercury, Venus your ruler rarely goes retrograde. So when she does on Oct 6 and in her ruling house in your chart (2nd), this is your cue to pause for serious thought. During the retrograde period she will move back into your sign and while she is moving backwards, Jupiter will shift out of your 2nd and on in to your 3rd. Is there an opportunity you have missed? You are being asked to look again or to be given a second chance opportunity. This is one of those rare cycles that can bring back something you missed –or return something that was always intended for you. Grab it when it reappears. 

Jupiter in your 3rd sees a yearlong focus on writing, communication, commerce, the internet, study, travel or just you discovering how far one idea can take you. Actually a very long way indeed. If you have a book, script, blog, website, business  or idea you need to share with the world, now is the time to do it. Jupiter will remain in your 3rd until December 2019 and remember, he is also in his ruling sign. This makes him extra expansive, optimistic and adventurous. It’s a time to dare to reach for that dream and Jupiter gives you the confidence to do that, while Uranus plugs you into the power of trying something new, innovative and maybe a little bit radical. The results could just be powerful magic with which to build the cornerstone for your future, Libra. Make 2018 the year of making the many opportunities around you realities.
